(BAD AXE) -- A 40-year old Detroit man was arrested during a traffic stop Sunday in Bad Axe after a joint investigation between Bad Axe Police and the Huron County Sheriff's Department. Heroin, crack cocaine and powder cocaine were seized, along with a loaded handgun from the vehicle. The suspect, Corey Thompson, is currently on parole for six previous felony convictions, which include armed robbery, carjacking, and drug and weapon violations. He was arraigned Monday for delivery of heroin and more charges are expected. At the time of the stop Sunday, a raid was taking place in the 100 block of W. Huron Avenue by Bad Axe Police and Sheriff's deputies. A 34-year old Bad Axe resident that had a felony warrant for possession of bath salts was found inside the home. The charge stems from the large bath salts related raid last October in Bad Axe. A Port Hope man and second Bad Axe man were found inside the home and face charges.
